Talking #13 Coming Up

Today in the states, its a big deal that Clijsters is the first Belgian woman to reach #1 and congrats to her BuT.........

it's called the Belgium Sisters Pattern

Justine and Kim's professional careers are almost parallel. When one achieves something, usually the other ones follow suit in weeks or months. So believe me Justine will be #13 any time sooooon (I predict in Zurich or Linz this year). Come on JuJu fans, the count down for Justine to become the 13th woman to reach #1 begins!!!!!!!1

Looking back at last year's results, its clear that Justine can make up ground on Kim during the last month of the season. Kim won a couple of titles last fall and Justine only had Linz. I bet that Justine will be the first Belgian to be year-end number one for the record books

since the new rankings system: year-end #1's:

1996 Steffi Graf GER
1997 Martina Hingis SUI
1998 Lindsay Davenport USA
1999 Martina Hingis SUI
2000 Martina Hingis SUI
2001 Lindsay Davenport USA
2002 Serena Williams USA
2003 Clijsters?? Henin-Hardenne?? S.Williams??

Let's hope so

I also predicted that Kim may fall out soon in the USOpen because she plays to much .. well that would help of course but I like it more that IF she gets there she beats everybody ... oh that's only Venus this year who hasn't beaten

Good luck Justine

Roland Garros '03,'05,'06,'07
US Open '03,'07 / Australian Open '04
Olympic Gold '04 /
YEC Madrid '06,'07
41 titles

Yep, Kim and Justine are equal in the US Open this year, who ever does better, will get more ranking points

However, I just get this feeling that Justine will have the daunting task again to beat a Williams in the semis. I think Venus will be on Justine's side (Ofcourse it would make us comfortable if Davenport was instead). I really think Justine is ready now to face Venus and defeat her in the hard courts.

Also, I'm an American and i've watched the US Open many times and that if Justine faces Venus in the semis, Justine will get more crowd support. It's ashame, but true. The way they booed Venus last year on her home turf was ashame!

practically win this title to get closer to #2, get farther than Clijsters in the Us Open and beat her for those bonus points, and have a solid fall season

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream
